For those who're busy with their daily work schedule and don't really have the time to hit the mall to do all the gift shopping, there's always a virtual way to get it done.
Yup, I am talking about online shopping! There are still a lot of people who're scared to shop online. Let me clear that one for you, times have changed and things have become safer. Shopping online is no more like what it used to be 10 years ago.
I am someone who hates to get out of the house and to go shop. The only way I shop is through my shopping apps and my experience couldn't have been better.
If I've convinced you enough, I would like you to go ahead and check out this list of online shopping hacks compiled exclusively for you.
You can thank me later.
Planning to buy a laptop? This is the right time!
If you order online, two medium topping pizzas are cheaper than buying one from the store.
When you book tickets online make sure you're using browser's private browser mode and also that you book them at or after midnight because that's when the fairs are comparatively down.
You should also know that prices fluctuate 3 times a day! So always keep an eye on it.
Buy tickets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays because usually the discount ticket sales are offered in the beginning of the week.
Always make sure that you compare before you buy!
Sites like Bizrate.com help in comparing the prices of the products that you want to buy.
You will always end up finding the right products at a better price.
If you choose an item and add it to your shopping cart, let it be there for a day or two. Some retailers will revert back with a special discount code on those products to spur you to make a purchase.
Now that's some smart buying!
Of course, this isn't new for you. But there's no harm putting it as a reminder.
Make sure when you shop online you use your personal internet connection instead of using the free closest networks around you. Because you know what the hackers are up to and with time they've evolved too!
Yes that's a big deal! Shopping from websites that are reputed will never spam you with lies.
They provide you with what they show you and nothing less!
So make sure whenever you shop online, you do a little research work before giving in your bank account details.
Websites which implements the protocol https:// instead of http:// are the ones you should trust.
These websites love PDAs. So if a brand offers free shipping or a discount code for liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter, just go for it! After you get the discount code you can even go back to unliking them and removing the evidence. Teehee!
